Dale Sievert of DS Landwork and Forestry Services LLC
Excavation and land clearing are big jobs that require big equipment. Often each piece of equipment needs its own trailer, but Dale has found that our 40K YHX Gooseneck Trailer can haul two machines at once! He also uses one of our DJX Dump Trailers to complete his excavation equipment trailer lineup.
Let’s get to Dale’s story.
WHO ARE YOU AND WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
“I am Dale Sievert from Saline Michigan”
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING?
“For a living, I own and operate a land clearing and excavation company along with working as a mechanical engineer and working on my family farm. The skills from both fields complement themselves very well and I am able to take knowledge from both trades and apply them.”
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
“I got started initially by running a mini excavator on my family farm and decided to pick up some small jobs. I owe a lot of the skills I was able to learn in the excavation field to a previous boss I worked with for multiple years doing excavation and grading work. After having success with the small excavation I decided to branch out into the land clearing work and from there I have worked, and continue to work hard, to grow the business every day.”
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE PART OF WHAT YOU DO?
“My favorite part of my job is being able to make landowners’ visions come true. Before the projects, we get the opportunity to work closely with the client to understand their desired outcomes. Being able to make these property visions a reality brings great enjoyment to the work we do.”
HOW DO YOUR MAXX-D TRAILERS HELP YOU GET WORK DONE?
“Our MAXX-D 40K YHX Gooseneck Trailer has allowed us to haul two machines at the same time allowing us to better serve customers along with reducing our driving time by not having to make two trips. Having the 40K rating also allows us to haul larger dedicated forestry mulchers and excavators. Our MAXX-D DJX Dump Trailer has made it easy to haul logs or debris from root raking off smaller jobs. ”
WHERE DID YOU BUY YOUR MAXX-D EXCAVATION EQUIPMENT TRAILER?
“I purchased the trailers from Gingerich Trailer in Millersburg, Ohio. They were great to work with from start to finish. I really appreciated that they listened to what I was going to be using the trailers for and made suggestions based upon that to find the right model of MAXX-D to fit my needs. I will be working with them again to purchase more trailers soon and I recommend you check them out if you are looking for a new trailer.”
